Transcript of A Golden Age: Three West African Empires

Three West African Empires A Golden Age: What resources made Taghaza and Walata important? What were two uses of salt that made it a valuable trade product? They used it as a spice for foods and a preserver for foods. One trade route from Ghana to Tunis passed through Marrakech and two other cities. Name the the two other cities. Siljimasa and Timbuktu Ghana's location helped it become a wealthy trade center because they were by a water source, this meant that they can exchange or trade by sailing to different places.
